The proposed tunnel – first mooted 20 years ago – will connect the cities of Dalian and Yantai, which sit either side of a narrow point of Bohai Bay. Currently, traveling from one to another requires a road journey of 1,400 km across the coast, or an 8-hour ferry.
"Using the tunnel, it will take only 40 minutes to travel from Dalian to Yantai," Wang Mengshu, a tunnel and railway expert at the Chinese Academy of Engineering, who is working on the project told China Daily newspaper.
